Ate in the first time, liked both the food and atmosphere. Tried takeaway service thrice thereafter as we find it difficult to visit a restaurant with 2small kids, but the staff taking orders over the phone were completely unhelpful and on occasion downright obstinate about any small changes to menu, even things like add a little more garlic to the...

Staff as always so polite and helpful. However I felt the food presentation had dropped a bit from past visits. The quality was was ok just lacking that spark.

Best Chinese restaurant in the south! I've been here a lot of times, I also travel the country for work and eat out a fair bit, so it's safe to say I've eaten in a few Chinese places. Famous for being hit and miss there's always a risk involved with going to them, even when there's good reviews on here.... More

Four of us went for my birthday and got the set menu it was very nice all you can eat. The food is very nice and waitresses are very friendly. Traditional Chinese food at its best! Would highly recommend.

Is this the best restaurant in Portsmouth? Well, certainly, it is my favourite. When we come here, we always do the All You Can Eat menu, which is excellent value. Everything is freshly cooked to order, and I have never had any dish less than superb. In addition, the bill is always less than I expect and the service is... More

I tried to book a table here as had heard good reports, booked it until I mentioned that I would be bringing my guide dog with me, the lad then went off to talk to his manager even though I explained it was illegal to refuse entry to a guide dog they told me I was not welcome. So the... More

Popped in on the off chance that they had a table (first time visit) and am so glad they did. Me and my husband both chose the very reasonably priced all you can eat option where everything was cooked fresh off the menu and to order. The food was delicious especially the lembu rendang and coconut rice and the staff... More

I used to like this place, it seems to get worse though. The area the place is in, has never been ideal but the food was alright to make up for it. Most recent trip, March 2014, probably will be the last. You have to say everything twice to the waiting staff, the portions get smaller and a bottle of... More

Visited this restaurant on a Saturday night with my husband and children aged 11 and 14. The restaurant was full and there was a vibrant atmosphere. The waitresses were dressed in traditional costumes which added a nice touch. Service was quick and friendly. We had the mixed starters, dumplings and crab claws for starters to share which we all enjoyed... More
